Metro Boomin is the latest musician to sell his catalog.
The super producer, born Leland Tyler Wayne, has sold a portion of his entire existing publishing catalog to Shamrock Capital for close to $70 million, reports Billboard. Shamrock is most notably known for their investment of Taylor Swift’s Big Machine catalog which the firm bought from Scooter Braun’s Ithaca Holdings in 2020.
Apart from several hits over the years, Metro scored a number 1 album in December with HEROES & VILLAINS which featured artists such as Travis Scott, Future, The Weeknd, Don Toliver, Young Thug, Chris Brown, A$AP Rocky, Gunna, and late Migos member Takeoff.
Some of Metro Boomin’s biggest hits include ‘Bad and Boujee’ by Migos, ‘Mask Off’ by Future, ‘Congratulations’ by Post Malone, ‘Bank Account’ by 21 Savage, ‘Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1’ by Kanye West, ‘Jumpman’ by Drake and Future, ‘Heartless’ by The Weeknd, ‘Waves’ by Kanye West, ‘Child’s Play’ by Drake, ‘Tuesday’ by iLoveMakonnen, and many more.
